This Week

April 29 - MAY

Posted by Catherine Bartlett on April 28, 2019 at 11:40 AM

So the end is near - time to start SUMMARIZING and to start SUMMERIZING...Whether you are in your first year or last year, we all feel the same way: How is it happening so fast? Have we gotten everything done? Why are we already talking about next year?

Saturday night I was reminded of a recent article I read about "AND". On Saturday night, I was driving home close to midnight with Payton from her softball tournament. They had played 5 games - the shortest was 90 minutes, but the longest two games went over 2 hours each (thanks tie breaker... and double tie breaker...), and we had lost out at the final moment. On the quiet long drive, my hardworking, sore, tired, smelly girl said, "I don't think we've ever not been back on a Sunday in any tournament." We mourned that for a couple of minutes, and then I pointed out how it would feel to sleep in (OMG - SOOOO good!!), get that project done (ummm, you have had a week, but hey...), and maybe lay out by the pool (isn't that why we got it? I dunno...). And I remembered the power of AND. **Side note - I am sure that at some point it was Elisa Krug who shared this with me, as she funnels so much wisdom my way. Thankful, Grateful, Blessed!).

I turned and looked Payton in the eye and said, "It is okay to be sad that we lost out AND to enjoy our day off." Huge weightlifter...

So, that's my personal story - but for you, my hardworking, sore, tired (not smelly!) staff: It is okay to be sad that your year is ending with all of your little people AND to look forward to waving goodbye.

I appreciate you giving your best effort these last few weeks and helping them finish strong. I love how we all come together and fight this great fight - there is nobody I would want on my team besides each of YOU. You are the BEST. :)
